Our swim school program is unique, in that we remove all flotation devices so that our students can learn how to swim naturally. This helps facilitate independence in the water, allowing students to discover their own natural swimming abilities.
Developed over 25 years of professional swim coaching, our methodology combines 3 spheres of development, going beyond what other swim schools can offer.
By combining this triad of focal points, we believe we offer the best method of facilitating the development of water safety and the body’s natural impulses, to teach swimming as naturally as possible. No Kickboards, No Flippers, No Noodles, No Pullbuoys, No Floaties, No Back Bubbles – we learn more without than with!
Our methodology combines three main focal points: Brain, Movement, and Stimulation.
In Brain, we focus primarily on ensuring that emotional comfort in and under water is established with acceptance by mouth paramount in the early stages of learning. Once these fundamentals are in place, humans move out of the survival brain of panic in water. When this Emotional Comfort Brain is established Body Tuning for learning to swim begins. We then go on and build the Movement and Stimulation aspects establishing the Human Body in Water as a fully integrated system. This is body – mind connection in water.
In Movement, we are constantly aware that each swimmer has his or her own unique style of moving through water. We find ways to bring this to the swimmer’s attention and guide it to it’s full potential. We tap into the individuals natural body flow!
The Stimulation process is unique to JSSS coaxing the swimmer’s nervous system to respond in water as it does on land, that is, without hesitation! It is in this aspect of training that we apply a variety of energised activities and “course corrections” to bring about Excellence in Water without Effort.
